Keeping An Insect As A Pet, The Sphinx Moth


So it is midnight and I found a pupa in with my hornworms! I plan on taking care of it and helping it to emerge as a beautiful large moth. Hornworms are commonly used as feeders for reptiles and one of mine has entered it's pupa phase! I thought this could be a fun experiment to help it emerge as the sphinx moth. The sphinx moth is a relatively large moth with up to a 4 inch wing span. I am very excited to see it emerge and spread its wings!
